For many of us who enjoy landscape design, taking a tour of public gardens provides inspiration as well as a delight to the senses. With winter arriving in Minnesota, we are very limited in what’s available now other than indoor conservatories. But that doesn’t mean public garden tours have to stop. For a bit of a cold-weather pick-me-up, check out this article from last spring’s Garden Designers Roundtable meeting. The group gathered at the public Huntington Gardens in San Marino, California. The displays are just gorgeous.
Floral gardens create visual delight, enhance landscape, provide cut flowers for your home, and so much more. If you’re considering incorporating more flower beds into your landscape, perhaps you’ll find some inspiration in these photos.
